    Marble is a metamorphic crystalline rock composed predominately of crystalline grains of calcite, dolomite, or serpentine. It is a soft stone most commonly used for bathroom countertops, floors, and showers. It is available in slab and tile and is usually polished. Marble requires more maintenance than most other stones. It will stain and scratch easily which makes it a less desirable choice for kitchens. Marble will also etch, or lose its shine over time. You've probably never seen a really old piece of marble that is still shiny, it is just part of the character. It is best to either embrace the changes that happen naturally to marble or go with a different stone.
